FLORAL arrangements that captured the feel of a country garden or resembled a historical event were on display at two charity flower festivals in Huntingdonshire.

A feast of colours lined St Mary's Church in Houghton on June 9 and 10 - all created to represent the theme 2007: An Eventful Year.

These included displays which resembled famous people and historical events.

The weekend, which raised more than £3,000, concluded with a festival concert.

Carol Jennings, who helped organise the event, said: "We were really busy and, when I tried to attend the Sunday evening concert, I couldn't get in the church.

On the same weekend, Ramsey hosted its 38th flower festival in Thomas a' Becket Church.

The theme was Through the Garden Gate and participants were asked to create floral displays that would enable visitors to take a trip through stately gardens.

A total of £1,310 was raised for the church restoration fund.
